Global Perspectives

Rockrimmon students gain real-world knowledge and skills through the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme. They begin to understand their role in our global community as they learn languages, collaborate on cultural programs, research world issues and respect differences.

Tailored Teaching

No one-size-fits-all here. Rockrimmon teachers bring personal and professional passion to the classroom through developing their own curriculum. Each school year, teachers pitch their programming ideas, which are evaluated for adjustments throughout the year and fine tuned for individual learning styles.

Education with Heart

Rockrimmon is a designated “Capturing Kids Hearts.” Our campus works hard to build community and relationships in every classroom. This focus on connections (each child is personally greeted each morning) helps teachers understand students and offer a gut check on their progress and wellbeing.

Academics in Action

Some of the best learning takes place when kids leave their desks. At Rockrimmon, students build confidence, motivation and global awareness through interactive programs like Junior United Nations, World Tour Day and clubs that foster skills in science, the arts, technology and leadership.
